Texas Attorney General Sues Biden Admin. For Title IX Misuse

News & Politics

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton just sued the Biden Administration for its unlawful use of Title IX to allow trans-identifying males the ability to compete in women’s sports and use women’s bathrooms in public schools.

In early April, the Education Department revealed new regulations that would prohibit schools from being allowed to protect biological girls sports and safety. The new regulations are set to take place in August, hence Paxton’s decision to sue the Biden Administration with the help of America First Legal (AFL).

The new requirements would expand the definition of the word “sex” to include a student’s self-professed “gender identity.” Now, any educational program that receives federal funding like K-12 schools, colleges and universities will be required to adhere to the wishes of any student who identifies as a gender that isn’t scientifically accurate. Essentially then, a male student who claims to be transgender and identifies as a girl, would be welcomed into all spaces dedicated to actual girls. 

The Department of Education formally amended the Code of Federal Regulations to adhere to the new rule. 

A Press Release from Paxton’s office released Monday indicated that:

This rule violates existing federal law, ignores the Constitution, and denies women the protections that Title IX was intended to afford them. The Biden Administration has exceeded its authority and radically distorted the meaning intended by Congress when the law was made. Further, the changes would fundamentally transform the educational atmosphere of publicly funded educational institutions, forcing communities to capitulate to unscientific gender ideology and putting girls and women at risk in K-12 schools and on college campuses.

The new regulations also note that it would be considered “harassment” to use someone’s biologically accurate pronouns if they choose to live with a delusional sense of identity.

Texas will not allow Joe Biden to rewrite Title IX at whim, destroying legal protections for women in furtherance of his radical obsession with gender ideology,” said Attorney General Paxton. “This attempt to subvert federal law is plainly illegal, undemocratic, and divorced from reality. Texas will always take the lead to oppose Biden’s extremist, destructive policies that put women at risk.

America First Legal’s president Stephen Miller noted how this lawsuit is needed in order to protect young girls:

Biden’s new Title IX regulation is a vile obscenity: it forces women and girls to share locker rooms and restrooms with men. It forces them to call a he, a she, and to pretend in every way that a man is a woman, humiliating, degrading, and erasing women. This is an abomination, and as outside counsel for Texas we will battle this regulation in court with all the legal fight we can bring. It must be defeated for the sake of American women and for the sake of our daughters.

It’s really sad that we’re still having this fight when one slide clearly cares about the safety of young girls and the other cares about pushing an agenda.
